A Night of Spoken Word

In support of Mic Check Poetry Fest, Rapson Collaborative presents a live show featuring top spoken word performers sharing their work with the accompaniment of the band Wave Cage.

Mic Check Poetry Fest is a two-day celebration of spoken word and its power to bear witness, create community, and inspire change. The festival is packed with a variety of events, from performances by Iowa spoken word poets to a showcase highlighting nationally-acclaimed artists Danez Smith and Denice Frohman, making it unlike any other festival in Iowa. In the true spirit of spoken word, Mic Check Poetry Fest gives space for attendees to engage and create through writing workshops and a poetry slam and open mic.
